    Re- gentrification, see, e.g., http://www.dallasobserver.com/news/david-jensen-the-west-dallas-warehouse-guy-gets-screwed-by-city-hall-7490469 , recounting how, at the behest of a developer, the City of Dallas used a bogus excuse to force an artist in W. Dallas to sell the warehouse he’d owned for many years at a below-market price. Artists and others without a lot of political or financial clout can either pay attention and act collectively, or we can let TPTB pick us off one segment at a time.
